now, i prefer the stripes, just to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

this was a brilliant idea of Kays, maybe we could repeat it at some point in the future, or just have a " show and swap" of our unwanted beasts, if we have any more, (or mind changes) someone is bound to like them !

Bella couldn't help herself and had to get in on the photo shoot. I like the way she is pointing at the beast.

Love her x

The whole idea of remaining anonymous was so no one need feel embarrassed about having purchased ugly fabric!

I know that some people have also gone to the extra effort of ensuring that their squishy is not posted from the area that they live in so the postmark doesn't give the game away. I guess if whoever sent you your fabric is happy to let you know who they are then they could PM you 😃

Maria, I like your idea of a show & swap as we all seem to have very different taste.

Hooray!!!! My fabrics have arrived.

Beauty and the Beast Swap

Sorry about the poor photo, the colours have confused my camera.

Beauty and Beast - which is which? Well, I like the blue birds on the lime green background - lime green is one of my favourite colours, and I have seen just the quilt design for it in a magazine that came yesterday, but sadly it is my Beast.

I love, love, love the cranberry spotty fabric. It will go in my spotty collection that is waiting for me to find the perfect design and be brave enough to cut into it! It is my Beauty.

Thank you for two great fabrics.
